ImNotOk Posted July 8, 2011 Share Posted July 8, 2011 Hi folks I'm not really quite sure where to post this. Mods, if you think it should be moved then please feel free! Embarrassingly, I'm in need of some quick $$ to pay for some art lessons that I'm hoping will help me improve my craft. Have any of you ever gotten paid to donate plasma? I'm a burnt-out nurse & aware of what is involved in it, but I've never done it. I've researched it online and called 2 local donation centers to ask them, but didn't really get a definitive answer. One said that if I was otherwise healthy I would have to get my doc to sign a form giving me permission to donate while taking this med. Well, with my doc, this could take forever. A form such as this one could sit on his desk indefinitely..The other donation center (there are only 2 that I'm aware of in my area) told me that they couldn't tell me over the phone but would I would have to come in and see. Right now, I only take my generic Adderall 20 mg twice per day and no other meds and am otherwise healthy. As an aside, my parents are horrified that I would even consider doing this! So, I called my sister to get a reality check and she said that she doesn't see anything wrong with doing it 1 time, but any more than that would be crazy. Not quite sure how once is very different from twice, but there you go. I definitely don't want to go around with huge tracks on my arms and get mistaken for a junkie, nor am I someone who particularly enjoys getting stuck. But sadly, right now, the pay sounds like a lot of money to me... I now wish that I could edit my username to ImDoingMuchBetterNow or the like, because the meds really do help me feel more normal, balanced, and kind. Thanks in advance to all who reply!
